Report Social Security Fraud
Social Security Fraud
The Social Security Administration considers reports of fraud very seriously. The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) investigates instances of Social Security-related fraud and program abuse. You may report instances of potential fraud directly to OIG by any one of the following methods:
- Call toll-free: 1-800-269-0271
- Write to:
Social Security Administration OIG Hotline
P.O. Box 17768
Baltimore, Maryland 21235
Be sure to include as much information as you can:
- The name, address, telephone number, and Social Security Number (SSN) of the person suspected of fraud. If the SSN is unknown, include as much identifying information as possible, e.g., the individual's date and place of birth, father's name, and mother's birth name
- A complete description of the potential fraud incident
- Your name, address and telephone number
Without sufficient identifying information, OIG will not be able to act on your allegation.
The Medicare program is under the jurisdiction of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. If you would like to report an allegation of fraud, you may call their toll-free number at 1-800-447-8477.
